“ Tokyo Is great ”

Mrs Atsuko is an excellent guide who is fluent in the english language. I mention that because that is not easy to find in japan. She worked out a plan according to our wishes and showed us everything we wanted. She is a well educated and delightful person which i can highly recomend. Chris and family from Austria

Atsuko:

“ Great tour guide with great personality ”

Atsuko was great right from where we met at the train station. She helped me purchase a train card and explained how it was used. She took me to all the sites that I wanted to see including to a maid cafe which was very fun. I think Atsuko had more fun than I did as she laughed at me with my bunny ears! The Hamarikyu Garden was gorgeous and Atsuko explained the plants and the history of the garden which was fascinating. For lunch I wanted to eat something Japanese but also something that I had never eaten before so Atsuko took me to an excellent Japanese restaurant and helped me order food. I don't speak Japanese so Atsuko's translations were awesome. I could never had done this tour by myself without her help. Atsuko also took me to the Tokyo tower, a must see for me, which was incredible. I would not think twice to hire Atsuko again for more sight seeing in the future. If you are looking for a guide that is friendly, funny, and very helpful then look no further. I highly recommend Atsuko for your sight seeing tours.

Atsuko:
Good morning Luis, Thank you for great review. It's my pleasure to be your guide. You told me a lot which I didn't know like cooking recipe, about Mexico and culture etc... Otaku culture represent one of cool Japan thing. Thanks to you I had a fun time and wonderful experience. Have you got the cloud and Maginger Z figure which you looking for ? I hope you got them. Thank you again and I hope to see you again. Take care for your ear.

“ What an amazing Lady! ”

Atsuko has been all that we could wish for in a Guide for our visit to Tokyo, and more. We gave her our 'Wish List' Itinerary three months before our arrival, and we will achieve all of our aims, which is down to Atsuko's amazing efficiency. She has a wonderful personality, and has a great sense of humor. We could wish for no one better to be our Guide, than this amazing Lady. We anticipate returning to Tokyo again, sometime early 2018 and we shall be booking Atsuko well in advance of our arrival date.

Atsuko:
Thank you for your such a wonderful review! I'm glad you like the tour. Also we have still 2days tour left. I will do my best to make your stay in TOKYO memorable one. You are real gentleman you remind me that the feeling when I lived in UK. It's my grearest pleasure to be your guide. Thank you and see you later. Atsuko

“ Atsuko was fantastic ”

It was the first day of our first ever visit to Tokyo. Atsuko put together an itinerary that had us visit the major highlights and gave us a great orientation of the city. She showed us how to use public transit and suggested some wonderful places to visit for the next days when we would be on our own. Her English is excellent and she relates very well to Americans which made our day a lot of fun. She easily conveyed her knowledge of history and culture of Japan. Overall we had a great day and I would strongly suggest Atsuko as a guide and we would use her next time in Tokyo.

Atsuko:
Thank you for wonderful review! I had such a fun time with your family. Your family are ideal relationship each other. I wish our family relationship will be like yours and I would like to travel with after their marriage. You knew many things about Japan that I was impressed like Tower record and Tokyo station hotel manager episode. You taught me a lot. I hope to see you again and thank you again. Atsuko
